Southampton have today confirmed that manager Mark Hughes (if he remains at the club) will be taking the first team group on a pre-season training camp in China.

We fly out on June 30 and arrive in Shanghai the following day. Our two-week stay in the Far East will see us based initially in the city of Kunshan where we will take in a friendly against Schalke 04 on Thursday, July 5. The game takes place at the Kunshan Stadium and will kick off at 12.30pm BST.

Following that game on July 8, we travel 300 miles north-west to the city of Xuzhou. The second part of the training camp will see us face Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning. That game takes place at the Xuzhou Olympic Sports Centre Stadium at 12.30pm BST on Wednesday, July 11.

We head back to Southampton on Friday, July 13 to continue our preparations for the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Plenty of work still to be done between now and then!
